    The pic of Braymond, is that the same bar? If so, mounted with on the same holes?

    And droplink endpoints at same position? I say endpoints as equal length would not take into account different state of lowering and mounting point position of the droplink on the strut.

    Differences there could be the difference between the swaybar clearing, or not clearing the plate at full droop.

      It's impossible really to tell if that's the same bar by those pics alone. The M3 Blsteins have a fixed upper mount for the droplinks, the variable end is the bar and I've measured with both holes. I would need ~40mm shorter droplinks for it all to fit. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

        The length of the droplink itself doesn't matter. It's where it connects to. Like lower control arm vs strut. (regular E36 vs M3). So you can alter the plate or fit different size droplinks.

        This of course if there is not something else wrong as Braymond suggests.

          "The length of the droplink itself doesn't matter... so you can ... fit different size droplinks." You lost me with that sorry. ๐Ÿคจ

          I'm using M3 B6 struts and standard M3 droplinks, the links are attached to the strut in the normal (M3) fashion. Shortening the droplinks will certainly help with the plate, that's a given, but I don't want to do that.

          That's a good theory but without an actual hypothesis (i.e. what else could be wrong) then it doesn't help solve the problem. Nothing obvious is wrong and if it were something obscure I'm sure we would have discussed it by now or Turner would have suggested it.

            Should be problem solved, I cut one back 30mm and the other 40mm so I can try various sway bar settings. They came up really well with a plasma cutter then a smooth along the edges, best of all it cost me nothing but time.

              Aces. 8mm clearance on the 40mm cut with swaybar set at hardest, full droop. You can see just how far out the original plates were, never going to fit.

                  If you're using lowering springs, and using OE length ARB links, that will rotate the ARB forward into the underpanel.
                  You likely need shorter ARB links.
